    As a student of several entrepreneurship and innovation focused programs, I can vouch that the overuse of buzzwords and vague positive notions can drown out practice and metrics-based decision making. Having solid numbers and measurements for these terms is vital for good analysis.

    There is something to be said for real, substantive, high-level conversation that deals in abstractions instead of data. Reading Russ Ackoff, the biggest name in Systems Thinking, it seems like there might be something worthwhile in inspecting the context of systems, looking at the dynamics qualitatively before putting metrics to it.

    I look forward to reading more about the project, it seems full of potential.

    Well written and well put points. Can we follow the process at good.is/MASD? I would like to learn more.

      We'll be writing another post at the end of the series... you'll be able to see a bit of progress there :)
